Decent enough pub. No real ales, the prices are reasonably as most of Bradford is and the locals seemed friendly enough, the barman was quite cheery. I did go into this pub on a Saturday just after Bradford City had kicked off at 3pm so I'm not sure what it may have been like later on.

Agree with Wooly2708 - been paineted on the outside recently but not been in since. The landlady is the woman who was on the recent "Make Bradford British" documentary. I went in wearing a suit after work and everyone thought I was a journalist ! Friendly lot and no bother - good if you've had a few and want an interesting chat !

On a crawl of Bradford on 9th December it was open; one of our party, a confirmed larger drinker, dragged us into this boozer, attracted by flashing coloured lights and the sign that said Karaoke from 2pm. The interior looked as if it could be a fine historic pub with a lot of T.L.C. I didn't fancy the Tetley's Cask which I would have found tasteless after the wonderful hoppy brews at other pubs, opting for a brandy! The customers were certainly interesting folk and polite, unless you tried to knick their Karaoke spot! You'd be better going there in a group!

It's not such a bad place. Been a couple of times and the regulars are just salt of the earth people - the best type in my view! To be honest I can't remember if the beer was particularly good and I certainly can't remember any real ales.

I bed to Differ with the other postings, the pub maybe a bit 'rough and ready' but it is an old style character pub. As for thieves a friend of mine lost a phone in there on a night out. The next day we got the phone back as it had been handed in!!

At any time of the day, you can sure that the strains of tuneless karaoke will be drifting across Westgate. Still, there aren't many pubs left like this in Bradford, and so it should be cherished.
